I am getting some pieces together to send to Illinois to an art show. I need a few more that will be for sale.~ So, I have been steady working on them. I will also be sending about two portraits, that I don't want to sale, because they are of my children. But, they will serve as examples of my children portraits and hopefully send some commissions my way.
And~ School starts next Tuesday~ I better be able to post @ least two finished pieces by tomorrow evening.~ Boy, I wish I were able to stay up at night & work. But~ I become completely wrecked. I am an "Early Bird". But~ those "Night Owls" seem to be super productive. ~Amy~
p.s.~ and I finally started my pallet knife painting , that I said I would try, while watching Susan Carlin do one of her painting demos. She was doing a portrait with a pallet knife . And~ I am making a fine mess of it. It is 11"x14"~ it actually looks better in this photo, than real life.

Hi Amy, You are too hard on yourself, I think it's looking good. What a sweet subject. Good luck on your show.

Hi Amy! I'm no night owl myself... I don't know how some people do it

That's wonderful about the art show! you'll have to keep us up to date... I bet the exposure will bring lots of portrait work :)

Hi Amy,
That's funny you think your pallet knife painting is a mess, because that is what I was attracted to the most when visiting your blog! Hope your show is a success, and sorry about your dear doggie. Mine past away not too long ago and I was so upset. Toby was a part of my family for 12 years. He's always in my heart thought.
Take care,
